Cassper Nyovest sued for R3m for damage to property

Cassper Nyovest has reportedly been served with a letter of demand for R3 million by Rawbust Productions, because the rapper allegedly destroyed footage from their camera after an interview allegedly became heated.

TshisaLIVE reports that it is in possession of the letter which was sent to the rapper three weeks ago.

Apparently the letter claims the alleged altercation led to damage of property and loss of income.

Cassper allegedly lost his cool during an interview at the SA Hip Hop Awards in December, after a member of Rawbust Productions asked about claims that he reached 10 million record sales during his career.

The rapper’s claim of reaching 10 million record sales caused a frenzy last year after DJ Maphorisa publicly questioned the statement, and told Cassper not to “lie” to fans.

At the time it was not clear if the sales were verified and if it included digital streams as well.

“We are advised that when our client interviewed yourself [Cassper], you were unhappy with the questions posed and thereafter threatened to damage our client’s equipment, including their cameras. Our client proceeded to inform you that they would be willing to hand over their memory card on the basis that just your interview be deleted.

“Our client confirms that your management team took possession of the memory card at around 22:00 pm and disappeared backstage. After half an hour, our client’s memory card was handed back,” the letter apparently states.

The publication reports that Rawbust claims that several hours later the team member realised that all footage from the day had been “erased” and not just Cassper’s interview as agreed.

Cassper has not yet commented on the legal saga and apparently his team declined to comment to TshisaLIVE.
